Dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
A CONSEQUENCE OF POVERTY IS THAT FAMILIES MUST OFTEN LIVE IN HOMES THAT ARE INADEQUATE, POORLY INSULATED, CROWDED AND UN-AFFORDABLE. IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED FAMILIES TO
spend over half their monthly income on housing costs and still live in cold, crowded conditions. KRFDC believes that all individuals and families should have access to safe, decent and affordable housing. Through a variety of housing programs, KRFDC makes a difference in people’s lives by making a difference in their living conditions.
KRFDC uses grant funds to provide assistance. The family secures a very-low, affordable interest rate loan to cover a portion of the home and the remainder of the costs are paid for with grant funds secured through Kentucky Housing Corporation.
Persons living at or below 80 percent of the median income, including homeless persons who are graduates of KRFDC’s Supportive Housing Program will be eligible to apply for the program.
Throughout the homeownership experience each client receives continuous support from a Foothills housing coordinator who will provide case management and advocacy targeted at self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Services from the housing coordinator will continue to be made available as needed.

Homeownership counseling is a free service offered in Estill and Powell County. This service is provided for first time homebuyers with low to moderate income. The counseling program will educate participants in every aspect of the home buying process.
The Homeownership Program consists of one-on-one counseling sessions as well as group discussions. These sessions are designed to help potential homebuyers become more aware of the following:
The monthly income of the family cannot exceed 80% of current HUD income guidelines. The monthly income of the family must be sufficient to support a mortgage payment necessary to purchase a modest home in Powell County. Must be willing to cooperate as well as participate in taking necessary actions required to be met. This includes but is not limited to contacting creditors, paying on delinquent credit/collections, and assertiveness necessary for credit repair. Participants who fail to meet the above listed requirements will be excused from the program if deemed necessary.
